Juthatham Chirathivat, Head of Business Development for Central Pattana plc, said: “Central Pattana has accumulated experience, expertise, and success over 42 years, and Central Westville in Ratchapruek is the 40th shopping center, which complements our ‘strategic ring’ in every direction of Bangkok. It supports urbanization and meets customers’ needs for access to restaurants and shopping venues with popular-brand products without the necessity of traveling to the center of Bangkok. The Ratchapruek area holds great potential, with high urbanization growth, comparable to the CBD area, as it connects several major zones in Bangkok, from Sathorn, Phetkasem, Borommaratchachonnani to Nonthaburi and Pathum Thani.
These are the main routes that people use to travel in and out of Bangkok, as well as to various other provinces. Ratchapruek encompasses the expansion of the transportation system and various train lines, especially the major MRT Purple Line, which directly connects Ratchapruek to the city center. The population in the catchment area is approximately 600,000 people. Therefore, having Central Westville as the first shopping center in the area and the only destination that fulfills all living needs in every aspect is an exciting upgrade for the western side of Bangkok.”
Juthatham added: The main concept of Central Westville is to blend nature with urbanization. Even with rapid growth, Ratchapruek maintains its natural beauty, with abundant green areas throughout the district. As Ratchapruek becomes more urbanized, we aim to create the perfect synergy with the ‘Semi-Outdoor Model,’ inspired by the success of Central Eastville. Central Westville is designed to establish a multi-dimensional relationship with nature. This can be observed in the facade design, characterized by open and airy architecture that incorporates trees and green spaces, harmonizing with the building. Every part of the semi-outdoor area maximizes exposure to nature in all its forms, including sunlight, wind, the sound of water, and plants. To ensure sufficient natural light, the main indoor area features a skylight. Our designs primarily utilize natural and recycled materials.
- Waterfall Amphitheatre: The over 20-meter-high amphitheater falls are one of our highlighted designs and are located in the heart of the shopping center. It serves as an ideal meeting venue for people in the Ratchapruek area.
- Triple Playgrounds: To cater to the needs of our family groups of customers, Central Westville features three playground areas that strengthen learning and play in different natural environments.
- Sky Garden & Running Track: Meeting the needs of health-conscious individuals, there’s a running track longer than 400 meters within a beautiful rooftop garden. The design meets the standards of running tracks used in professional competitions. Additionally, there are fantastic outdoor activities to meet the needs of family customers, such as SkyRise Adventure, which is the first outdoor rope course in Thailand.
- Pet Destination: The Pet-Friendly landmark covers a total space of 1,000 m2, bringing together the most comprehensive and complete pet facilities found in other Central Pattana projects. The Pet-Friendly landmark features a Pet Lobby, Cart Service, Leash Pole, Water & Waste Station, as well as the first Pet & Me Flagship Store, in addition to Nana Café, Pet-Friendly Café, and more.
Central Westville will open on 29th November 2023, starting at 10:00 AM. The grand opening will feature a special highlight performance by the popular actress, ‘Bow Melada.’ This event aims to connect happiness with the world of nature beyond imagination, offering captivating images, sights, and sounds of the 20-meter-high amphitheater falls, alongside a new form of nature delivered through technology.
Explore the Eco-pet Town and Paw of Fame, the only pet celebrity landmark in Thailand, reminiscent of the Hollywood Walk of Fame on both sides of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood, Los Angeles, California, USA. ‘Pet Influencers’ like Jum Meng from Japan and Friends Page will leave their paw prints at the Paw of Fame.
Visit Sweet Sensation, a delightful photo landmark complete with a giant macaroon truck and various sweet dessert shops, including Michelin-guide listed food options. All booths are constructed from environmentally-friendly materials that can be reused.
Have fun on the Clean Energy Butterfly Swing, where the remaining power generated can be used to recharge your device’s battery. You can also enjoy your favorite drinks and music during the opening event.”
